Clark Fined 15K For Hit Against Patriots
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Steelers safety Ryan Clark was fined $15,000 Thursday for a late hit out of bounds on New England tight end Rob Gronkowski in the third quarter of Pittsburgh’s 25-17 win Sunday at Heinz Field.
Clark joins Ramon Foster, Troy Polamalu, Chris Kemoeatu, Doug Legursky, Ziggy Hood, Ike Taylor, James Farrior, Maurkice Pouncey & Antonio Brown as Steelers to receive fines this season.
“It’s part of the rules, though, man,” Clark said today to the Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette. “If you get a personal foul, they’ve been fining for that. I have to be smarter in that sense and not put myself in that position.”
All told, Steelers players have combined for over $140,000 in fines.
